Know any students who may want free Autodesk software including Revit?

Did you know that Autodesk gives away free software to students with a valid school email address? What a great opportunity to get students started early (on the Koolaid) learning these great products. Revit, Civil 3D, Navisworks, Ecotect and more. Autodesk even just started giving away AutoCAD, although I can't imagine why when Revit is free. Make sure you tell this to your student interns. Make them learn Revit and then they can teach you.

Now, before you try to get your 12 year old's school email address and try to use these as your commercial products, remember that's illegal and prints a large student banner on each and every sheet. There's also the fact that bringing in work created on student versions into a commercial version of Autodesk products add the student mark to every file. Also, don't forget when you register the product, Autodesk gets your computer's DNA and IP address.

Important Note: The Autodesk Student Version software incorporates all the functionality of our professional licenses, but includes a print banner making the software inappropriate for professional, commercial, or for-profit purposes. Autodesk Student Version software may not be used in the classroom or lab for instructional purposes, or for commercial or for-profit purposes. Annual licenses of Autodesk student software are not eligible for product upgrade or transfer to a commercial license. View print banner sample. View print banner sample.
